CW-ITP

Welcome to CW ITP

CALLS FOR ETA & DISRUPTOR PROJECT PROPOSALS NOW OPEN - Register for Membership to Apply

ETA and Dynamic project ROM cost proposals deadline is 1st October 2021.  Disruptor proposals deadline is 3rd September 2021.  A Bidders conference to provide Q&A will be run on the 22nd July.

With a budget of up to €13M per year, the CW ITP programme funds proposals from Industry, SMEs and Academia on an annual cycle with the aim of developing novel, exploitable technologies for generation-after-next missile systems.

The CW ITP develops novel, exploitable technologies for generation-after-next missile systems to solve the capability challenges for future Anglo-French Guided Weapons capability.

Our strategy is to strengthen the technological base, allow for better understanding of common future needs and challenges for generation-after-next missile systems.

To achieve this, we seek to partner SME and Academic Institutions from the UK and France with Global Defence Industry players.

REGISTRATION is NOW OPEN
for the CW ITP Conference 2021

The FIRST CW ITP showcase event will take place at the Acropolis, in Nice, France
The event will run from the 27th October through to the 28th October.

Enduring Technical Areas

This is the larger innovation space, with 5 technical areas, each led by a leading French or British company in that area.

Mission, Systems & Algorithms

The Mission, Systems and Algorithms Enduring Technical Area is jointly led by MBDA UK and MBDA France. This ETA is focused on the development of cross cutting system technologies such as Image processing techniques and algorithms, mission systems such as planning and decision aids, guidance and control and navigation systems.

You can find out more about ETAs on the Innovation Overview page.

Dynamic Challenges & Disruptors

These are the two smaller innovation areas.

Dynamic Challenges

Dynamic in-year, priority challenges are likely to be addressed through one or more ETA Leads where the challenges fall within or cut across the existing CW ITP technical scope.

Disruptors

Disruptor Tasks are lower-level funded projects of up to 6 months’ duration and are a great opportunity for innovators to test their emerging ideas.

You can find out more about these on the Innovation Overview page.
